Tir a Môr Llŷn – Land and Sea

This collaborative project led by the Llŷn Landscape Partnership brings together statutory, environmental, economic and social groups. The project is centred on addressing the challenges impacting on the natural resources in the area. Communities within the Llŷn Peninsula rely on and benefit from their natural resources. 

This project therefore aims to maintain and expand a continuous strip of diverse habitat around the coastline, working with farmers to create connectivity corridors linked to the Wales coastal path, opening up recreational opportunities, benefitting health. It will also develop good practice in catchment management and invasive species control, producing significant economic and social benefits when allied to agricultural improvements and to socio-cultural resources such as the Wales Coast path. 

The Project will also be exploring the concept of ‘payment on outcomes’ with the help of three National Trust farms. The aim is to create a model and encourage the wider community to pilot and run the new approach. The Partnership has developed a collaborative and cooperative approach on a local level, allowing all involved to engage, develop and implement practical work plans quickly and seamlessly. The Partnership will build trust and positive collaborative working in the area to help deliver this project. Time will be spent on engaging the wider community through holding local events and engaging local schools to raise awareness of the benefits of the work.
